HARMONOGRAPH


My good freind Mike Weiner just sent me an excellent book entitled "HARMONOGRAPH A VISUAL GUIDE TO THE MATHEMATICS OF MUSIC".

Among the many fascinating topics, author Anthony Ashton  devotes pages to our celebrated Ernst Chladni, as well as Lissajous, a nice description of The Kaleidophone, a new-to-me visual map of Equal Temperament.  The book is done up as a small pamphlet of about 50 pages and published by Wooden Books Ltd., London.

Links about Chladni here.
